Good Neighbors

The good neighbor policy, indicating a better relationship, socially and economically, between neighboring nations, is steadily gaining ground and proving its worth.

More than two thousand years ago the true good neighbor policy was established by our great Master. Christ Jesus, who said. "Thou shalt love...thy neighbour as thyself." When a certain lawyer asked. "Who is my neighbour?" Jesus related the story of a certain man who "fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead." A priest, "when he saw him.... passed by on the other side." Then a Levite did the same. But a Samaritan not only had compassion on him giving him immediate aid, but also took him to an inn and there paid for his care. "Which now of these three, thinkest thou was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?" the Master queried. Was it not he who saw and understood the man's needs, regardless of his creed or race?
